The Doctors: Former Active Model Struggling With Weight
Monica was once a petite model with a 22-inch waist, but now she’s a mother of six and has nearly reached 300 pounds. As a teen she ran track and did some modeling, but about 15 years ago her first marriage fell apart and she began turning to food to cope. She became prediabetic and developed sleep apnea that requires her to wear a machine to help her breathe at night. She’s tried juicing, exercising, and other fixes, but claims nothing has worked for her. Monica realized that she has to make a change before her poor health takes her life.
